Performance Improvement Managers Network (PIM Network)

PIM Network Fact Sheet [PDF – 248KB] – describes the PIM Network and its activities, PIMs’ roles and responsibilities, and how the PIM Network supports PIMs.

The Performance Improvement Managers Network (PIM Network) is a community of practice that connects performance improvement managers (PIMs) working on the National Public Health Improvement Initiative (NPHII). PIMs are a vital part of NPHII, which supports state, tribal, local, and territorial health agencies and is strongly focused on performance management and continuous quality improvement, as well as improving jurisdictions’ abilities to meet national public health standards. The PIM Network was created by CDC in the Office for State, Tribal, Local and Territorial Support (OSTLTS) and includes PIMs and performance management and quality improvement experts and practitioners who receive NPHII support.

PIM Network activities support ongoing communication and network building, facilitate training and professional development, and build the evidence base for performance management and quality improvement efforts. These activities include

  • Hosting monthly educational webinars that often highlight the performance management and quality improvement efforts of the PIM Network members
  • Promoting active discussion and peer support via a private listserv and an online community of practice
  • Providing training and education opportunities at the annual NPHII Awardee Meeting
  • Identifying opportunities for participation in developing, informing, and updating PM/QI policies and practices
